Pairs best with milk chocolate with almonds, or gummy candies
Gummy candies with fruit flavor can enhance the coffee's pear notes. The chewy and fruity nature of these gummies provides a pleasant contrast to the coffee's complexity. Milk chocolate is naturally sweet and can accentuate the coffee's honey notes. Almonds provide a pleasant crunch, and their nuttiness can complement the coffee's toasted oats.

Pairs best with Twix
Twix has a buttery and crunchy cookie layer, which can provide a satisfying textural contrast to the coffee.
The caramel and milk chocolate components offer a smooth and creamy texture, adding complexity to the overall experience.
Pairs best with Skittles, Twizzlers
Pairing Halloween candy with coffee that has notes of raspberry, cherry, and jasmine offers an opportunity to balance the fruity and floral notes of the coffee with complementary or contrasting flavors. The combination of cherry or strawberry and the coffee complements both the coffee's cherry notes and the sweetness of the coffee. Gummy or chewy candies with cherry flavor can amplify the coffee's cherry notes. The chewy texture offers a pleasing contrast to the coffee's liquid form.
Pairs best with Butterfinger
Coffee has a complex and often bitter or roasted flavor, which contrasts nicely with the sweetness of peanut butter chocolate candy. The contrast between the bitterness of coffee and the sweet, creamy, and nutty qualities of the candy can be quite satisfying. The hot liquid of coffee can help cleanse the palate between bites of candy, allowing you to fully appreciate the different layers of flavor in the candy with each bite.
Burundi Kayananza-Pairs best with Snickers
Pairing coffee with a Snickers candy bar can create a delightful combination of flavors and textures. Snickers, with its mix of nougat, caramel, peanuts, and milk chocolate, pairs well with coffee that has sweet brown sugar and coffee flavors. Coffee can help balance the overall sweetness, preventing it from becoming overly cloying.
Whether you've found the perfect balance between the bitterness of coffee and the sweetness of your favorite candy, or you've ventured into a realm of contrasts that awaken your taste buds, the possibilities are endless.
This delightful pairing adventure invited us to celebrate the sweet and the caffeinated, to savor the familiar and discover new, unexpected pleasures.
